“Veeam Cares is about friendship, support and new opportunities.”

More than donating money

Adriana, HR Operations Projects Manager in Switzerland, has thrown herself into our Veeam Cares social responsibility program. “Our values are not just words on a piece of paper. We feel them and we implement them. And for me, the value that defines Veeam Cares is ‘Conversations from the Heart’. It isn’t just about donating money, food or clothes. It’s about friendship, support and new opportunities. And nobody says you have to take part in it — we do because we believe in it.”

Adriana spent 11 years working with Red Cross in Italy. Since joining Veeam, two initiatives stand out. “We hold an annual Christmas party for refugees. Last year 357 children came along to try to forget their fears. The second is supporting the Swiss Cancer League. A former Swiss National Junior hockey player, Tobias Lehmann, recovered from the disease and he organizes hockey matches in gratitude to support the League. We’re delighted to be involved in his hockey club, Starts for Life.”

And, with every project Adriana is involved with at Veeam, the support she gets from the company is there, continuously. “Veeam gives us three days off to support such projects. Our Executive team is very, very supportive and our line managers are very much involved in this.”

Our values are not just words on a piece of paper. We feel them and we implement them. And for me, the value that defines Veeam Cares is ‘Conversations from the Heart’. It isn’t just about donating money, food or clothes. It’s about friendship, support and new opportunities. And nobody says you have to take part in it — we do because we believe in it.”
Business is important. But some things in life are more important. #That’sVeeamazing!
